How People Can Choose A Trusted Gonstead Chiropractor Without Really Worrying

Jan 4, 2022

The purpose of Chiropractic is to detect & correct those structural shifts to restore the structural integrity of the spine. Restoring the nerve communication throughout the body. Many people associate chiropractic with neck and back pain or making you feel better and even though people do feel better, that is not the actual purpose of chiropractic. Its purpose is to restore and maintain the function of the human body allowing the bodies inborn intelligence to maintain homeostasis for proper healing and function. Sadly less and less are focusing their skills on spinal adjustments. Many physical therapists and other chiropractors have focused on manipulations of the spine. They are changing the structure of the spine to decrease muscle spasms & increase range of motion.


You may be thinking, this is great information but what should I look for in a quality Chiropractor so here are the 5 things I think are important when choosing a chiropractor.

1. Objective measurements to locate nerve injuries Neurological stress caused by structural shifts of the spine causes nerve injuries and prevents the nerve systems ability to send messages which control & coordinate the function of the body.

2. Full spine X-rays to see the structural shifts throughout the spine Would you want your doctor guessing which bone, he or she is adjusting? Or guessing how they need to move the bone to help your body heal? Seeing is knowing and X-rays help chiropractors make the best adjustment possible.

3. Don’t get adjusted the same as everyone else, your spine is unique and your adjustments should be too Your spine is unique and the adjustments you receive should be unique to your spine. There are many chiropractors who perform “flying 7” adjustments. This is a term used when the chiropractor performs the same 7 adjustments on every patient.

4. They should not sell you a year’s worth of care up front – everyone responds differently to care How does a doctor know exactly how your body will respond to care a year from now? Everyone responds differently to care. A chiropractor should come up with a care plan that lasts a few (3-6) months. So they can adapt their care to your changing needs.

5. Don’t go for the cheapest option, it’s like putting garbage into your system How well would your body function if you only gave it processed foods? It certainly would not function as well as it could. The same can be said for chiropractic care and almost all other services, you pay for what you get. You are worthy of quality chiropractic care so don’t short yourself.



As a Gonstead Chiropractor in Denver, I use an objective health care approach focused on the spine and nerve system. My focus in on the structure of the spine how it directly affects the nerve system. Gonstead chiropractors use 5 objective indicators to identify structural shifts of the spine outside of a normal structural range, similarly to how an engineer assesses the structural integrity of a building. Based on the information from the exam we create a care plan to make a long-term correction of the issue
